  • Ex-BHS pitcher moves closer to home

    It took former Brighton High School pitcher Adam Tabor exactly one semester to come back to the Denver area.

    Tabor, who sat out part of the 2014 season after Tommy John surgery, transferred to Metropolitan State University of Denver.

    “I was in Arizona for the first semester of my freshman year,” Tabor said. “I transferred to Metro during the spring semester after talking to Metro’s baseball coach, who previously shown interest in me as a baseball player.”

  • No such thing as disabled in Sands’ world

               On first glance, Prairie View’s Mikhail Sands looks like any other football player. Even during a youth football camp, Sands runs pass patterns and offers instruction to the campers.

                He played rugby and soccer. He ran track last spring. But as the saying goes, things are seldom what they seem.

  • Ex-BHS hurler Adam Tabor transfers to Metro State

    Former Brighton High School pitcher Adam Tabor is closer to home as he continues his college baseball career.

    Tabor, who had to sit out part of the 2014 season after Tommy John surgery, transferred to Metropolitan State College of Denver. He had been at South Mountain Community College in Arizona.

  • Otero takes option for CSU-Pueblo

    The power of familiarity.

    That’s what took Prairie View’s Donovan Otero to Colorado State University-Pueblo, where he’d like to walk on the school’s track team.

    “The main reason for this and not somewhere else is because I have a lot of friends who I look up to and I can have a friendly competition with like I have in the past,” Otero said.

  • Football conferences named

    A new enrollment cycle and a new way of lining up football leagues created newly named football conferences for the 2016 and 2017 seasons.

    Prairie View will be in the class 5A, Mount Elbert Conference. So, too, are Cherry Creek, Fossil Ridge, Horizon and Denver East high schools plus the Far Northeast Warriors.
